Khajuraho – One with Nature and Culture

Brijendra Singh is – among many other things – tour guide in Khajuraho. Everybody there calls him “mamaji”. He has a deep knowledge of Indian’s mythology and during his lectures/tours on the famous Khajuraho temples he easily links nature, culture and where it all comes from. He gives deep insights into India’s society.

When I first saw him I was blown away by the beauty of his look (eyes) and hands.
Really enjoyed the conversations we’ve had – (not only) Khajuraho needs many more of him!

During this interview we were sitting in his “bio”-garden – a beautiful spot in which every tree and vegetable and flower is treated naturally – no chemicals at all … except twice a day when airplanes fly 15m over his head to touch down at Khajuraho airport.

Incredible India 04 – Khajuraho

The Khajuraho Group of Monuments in Khajuraho (Hindi: खजुराहो), a town in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, located in Chhatarpur District, about 620 kilometres southeast of New Delhi, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. Luckily not so many have been there. Khajuraho has the largest group of medieval Hindu and Jain temples, famous for their erotic sculptures.

This village (20.000 inhabitants) is a very relaxed and peaceful place.
If you stay longer than 2 days – this is the time the average tourist spends there – the locals know you and don’t bother you any longer to buy things, take a ride on th etuctuc and what so ever.

I stayed there for almost a week and I am planning to come there more often since I’ve got involved in a project to build a schoolfor the poor there. More on this soon …
